We recommend the following care instructions:
Protect new canvas trainers by treating them with a stain and water repellent before you start wearing them.
Remove any dirt and stains as soon as they appear. Use a small bristle brush or a toothbrush together with washing-up liquid and cold water. Work in circular motions, scrubbing gently. Repeat as needed. Rinse with cold water but avoid soaking the shoe. Allow to air dry in a well-ventilated area. Wash the laces separately.Water-proof the leather shoes with a wax or oil-based polish before wearing them outside, avoid wet weather conditions during the first days of wear.
Polishing the shoes every other month will soften the leather and strengthen its protective barrier; it also keeps the leather fresh and supple, and prevents it from cracking and getting scratches. Remove dirt and stains regularly with a brush or damp cloth. Mud can be washed off with a leather soap in running tap water.
Brush the leather to remove dirt and apply a small amount of leather conditioner in circular movements, using a clean cloth. Let the shoes dry for a few minutes, then apply a light-shade cream or wax in the same way. Finish the routine by buffing the surface with a brush, and again let the shoes rest for a short moment.
If the shoes are wet through, stuff them with newspaper and let them dry in room temperature. Using a shoe horn will protect the structure of the heel, and in the long run the shape of the entire shoe.
Most of our fabrics are dyed. Due to the nature of the fabrics, colors could fade with washing or transfer onto other materials if rubbing occurs.
You can also wash them in a machine on a gentle cycle but be sure to wash them alone or with similar colors, as they might bleed. Do not tumble dry. Hang to dry and put an old towel under the jeans to catch any dye that drips.
Wash denim inside out, either by hand or in a gently cycle in the washing machine using cold water. Hang to dry. We recommend these articles to be washed separately.
Be careful when wearing new denim as the dye may transfer to light-colored surfaces, such as shirts, underwear, canvas trainers and furniture.
